About-

Both participants and leader will be transformed through this revolutionary approach to group Bible study. Far-reaching in its concept and implications, this innovative group-encounter method makes particular use of split-brain theory, emphasizing the province of the brain's right hemisphere -- synthesis, imagination, feeling, etc. It also blends biblical form criticism and Jungian psychology with a zealously inquisitive spirit.

Wink does well to integrate the social with the personal, as well as the relevance of a scripture passage in its original cultural context with its relevance to our contemporary context. Numerous examples and exercises are given, along with helpful appendices. If you are involved in clergy or lay study groups, teaching a church class, or conducting a prison ministry, Wink's study will open the door to a radically new understanding of the Bible. In the end, the transformation of study methods will lead to the transformation of participants.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"While in one sense (this book) is simply a how-to book, it is also a satchel bomb packed with high explosives. You can scarcely try this mode of group study without being forced to change....It is intended only for those who want to be transformed and to work toward transformation with others."

-- Walter Wink, in his preface
